The Dynavap vaporizer seems like it was made for induction heating!
I was sold on using the Dynavap with an induction heater from the moment I tried them together. They complement each other perfectly, as the metal Dynavap vaporizes cannabis brilliantly (instead of combusting it), and induction heating is a flameless way of heating metal objects via an oscillating magnetic flux.
I built my first induction heater after reading about them on FuckCombustion.com and Reddit, and watching a demo on YouTube.
My design uses a tactile switch to activate the heater, inspired by the design unveiled in FC user Pipes' first IH builds. Like others making induction heaters for Dynavaps, I acknowledge and thank Pipes for his generous contributions to the development of these devices. Thank you, Pipes!
I posted a writeup of my first build on r/vaporents and r/dynavap and received some nice comments.
After using my first heater for a bit, I decided it needed some additional features, like a momentary power switch (activated by pressing the tip against the bottom of the coil), and a MOSFET-controlled relay to better carry the power load and safeguard the momentary switch. (BTW, I have a lot of good things to say about these MOSFET controlled relays, which I'll explain in an upcoming post on this site.)
With the addition of those features, the heater really fell into place: good form and excellent function. I posted a write-up to r/vaporents. The readers on r/vaporents liked the design and requested copies, so I decided to make some and offer them for sale.
That process didn't happen immediately, as I wanted to learn more about how to make induction heaters before I began selling them. That time was well spent, and I'm not going into this blindly, or without some knowledge if how these things work and how to make them better suited for our needs as Dynavap users.
I am very wordy, so thanks for reading this far!
Please take a look around and see if you find anything you like. Drop me a line if you'd like to be added to a build list.
NOTE: I am still building both my heaters and this site, so please be patient while we are in development. I will have more info (and heaters to sell!) just as soon as I can get them finished!
I am offering three types of products:
Everything I plan on selling will be hand made or modified by me.
My standards are high and my skills are strong, but I am making these by hand, so there may well be small variations and imperfections in the finished work, including tool marks and other evidence of being made by hand. As Voltaire said, "The perfect is the enemy of the good."
As listed in the Shop.
Please take a look around the shop. I have induction heaters models at different price and feature levels, and my hope is that you will find one that's right for you.
I wlll be adding more models - especially portable units - as I make them.
If you don't see what you want - or if you have a custom project in mind - , send me an email. I'll see what I can do.
VISA and Mastercard coming soon (via Square credit card processing)

All specifications are subject to change without notice.
Due to their rapid development cycle and garage-born heritage, all Fluxer Heater products should be considered experimental. I have endeavored to make them safe - they have thermal fuses to protect aginast overheating and power fuses to protect against shorting out - but they must still be treated with respect. These devices are capable of generating enough heat to burn or injure. The work coil, in particular, may retain heat after use, so treat it with caution.
You are using Fluxer heater devices at your own risk.
If a Fluxer Heater product overheats, produces smoke due to electronic malfunction, or otherwise becomes unsafe, stop using it immediately! If you can safely separate it from its power source, do so.
In addition to the heating circuit, the Lithium-Polymer batteries that power the portable units are notoriously unstable devices and should be treated with respect.
In short: Fluxer Heaters products are not toys. Keep them away from children and pets.
Use them with safety in mind.
